Monthly Stock News

In 1975 J. John read ‘Journey Into Life’ and met Jesus. Ever since then he has had a desire to share Jesus with others. He has been described in a number of ways; an evangelist, minister, speaker, broadcaster and writer. He has travelled to towns and cities in 69 countries speaking at many events. He is also the author of many books including books for children, under the banner ’Theology for little people’. For a recent publication J. John invited ten children to send him their questions about God, Jesus and the Bible. He received 70 questions from them. He then selected 32 of the questions for a book called ‘ That’s a good question! ’. He has said that he found it “stimulating, challenging and hugely rewarding” to try and give concise answers to these questions. His book is divided into 6 chapters looking at topics such as God and the Bible, puzzling things about God, heaven, Jesus and life with the final chapter looking at ‘How should I live?’. The questions covered are varied….from ‘Who made God?’, ‘Does God sleep?’, ‘Were there dinosaurs on the ark?’ to ‘Can every wrong thing be forgiven?’. The book also has colourful artwork on each page. This is a helpful book seeking to answer some of the awkward questions children can ask ! (£5.99)

The ‘Ultimate Bible Dictionary’ is another recently published book that can help answer questions about things we come across as we read the Bible. It is described on the front cover as “A quick and concise guide to the people, places, object and events in the Bible”. To describe this simply as an A to Z list doesn’t do the book justice. In addition to giving a definition many entries also have colourful maps and photos. Some entries have a brief definition and then extra details eg. the entry for Peter goes on to describe Peter’s family, his role as a disciple, his role in the early church and his legacy. There are then further entries on the first and second letters from Peter. This hardback book provides a handy reference resource at a reasonable price of £7.50.
